Over the holiday weekend, our friend M clued us in to the new Pajamas Media (aka OSM) deal, which is apparently a more hipstery and cynical take on the citizen journalism which Dan Gillmor (currently at Bayosphere) has been championing and working at for several years.
This week, happily, DB pointed to an entertaining piece by photojournalist Jim Lowney on the whole thing, in a rather New Journalism bit of reporting from the OSM launch party. It's entertaining and - I fear - all too typical. I wonder about building a news site off of hype and good intentions, but it's proven successful for HuffPo.... Certainly another one to watch.Posted by esinclai at December 03, 2005 01:31 PM |
